The injury news has gotten worse for Virginia junior offensive tackle Landon Bradley. Head coach Mike London announced today that Bradley will miss the remainder of the season with an undisclosed lower-leg injury. Bradley had been rehabbing a hand injury which required surgery in October. He missed three games earlier this season before returning to play against Duke wearing a heavily-bandaged cast on his hand. However, Bradley left the game against the Blue Devils in the second quarter and did not return.
UVa has been forced to use rotations along the offensive line all season. Earlier this year, senior tight end Joe Torchia was sidelined after suffering a season-ending shoulder injury. It is expected that junior guard B.J. Cabbell will be used as Bradley’s replacement. London confirmed that freshman Morgan Moses will be used as the team’s right tackle. Earlier in the season, London suggested that Moses was better served playing on the interior of the Cavaliers’ offensive line. However, injuries have once again forced London to switch up his starting positioning.
